Corban RawlsSean GrieshopMicah Slaton, and Taylor Abbott combined for a final time of 6:32.88, which broke the 6:33.02 mark set in 2014 by the Santa Clara Swim Club.


Corban Rawls – 1:38.38
Sean Grieshop – 1:36.30
Micah Slaton – 1:40.18

The only member of that relay to double up with the 200 medley was Slaton, who provided a 22.14 fly leg prior to swimming this relay.

Michael Jensen’s 1:34 wasn’t too shabby out east.

So will they continue to maintain one JN record or an East and West record?

Sean Grishop has massive potential in freestyle events.
He is future Olympics and World Championships medalist, I have been following him since he was 10 and knew he was going to be a superstar.
